Leinster will be eager to add some sort of silverware to their trophy cabinet this season after a heartbreaking loss to La Rochelle in the final of the Champions Cup. Standing in the way of Leo Cullen's side and a place in the URC final is the Vodacom Bulls. Here's all the information you need to know including how to watch Leinster v Bulls.

How to watch Leinster v Bulls
The game is live on TG4, Premier Sports, and URC.tv.
Leinster booked their place in the semifinal after a record breaking 76-14 win over Glasgow Warriors. Leo Cullen's side ran in 12 tries during the rout at the RDS.
It was the reaction that all Leinster fans wanted and needed after losing in late, heartbreaking fashion in the Heineken Champions Cup final to La Rochelle the week previously. Despite Leinster's great season so far, a loss to the Bulls on Saturday would mean a rare season without a trophy for Leo Cullen and his side.
Leinster ended up in first place in the league table with the Bulls in fourth after the South Africans won 11 of their 18 games.
The Bulls overcame the Sharks in the quarterfinal by a scoreline of 30-27 in Cape Town. In the games prior to the quarter-final, the South Africans beat Ospreys, Benetton Treviso and Glasgow Warriors.
The last time the sides met was in matchday one back in September with Leinster emerging 31-3 winners.
Leo Cullen has named two changes to the side that beat Glasgow Warriors in the last round, with Robbie Henshaw coming in for Ciaran Frawley at centre where he will partner Garry Ringrose.
The other change comes in the back row where Jack Conan replaces Ryan Baird.
